Welcome to the fourth annual Read Harder Challenge! After months of brainstorming, they've put together a list of wide-ranging tasks that designed to help you to find more books and genres and authors and characters to fall in love with.
The list consists of 24 challenges, averaging out to two per month. You may count one book for multiple tasks, or read one book per task. Some of our staff members have decided to take on the challenge and we invite you to join us! And remember:
"We encourage you to push yourself, to take advantage of this challenge as a way to explore topics or formats or genres that you otherwise wouldn’t try. But this isn’t a test. No one is keeping score and there are no points to post. We like books because they allow us to see the world from a new perspective, and sometimes we all need help to even know which perspectives to try out. That’s what this is – a perspective shift – but one for which you’ll only be accountable to yourself."
